Upgrading original tube radios
Design: Tomo Evic, Kerstin Kavadias, Andreas Oesteritz, Detlef Vangerow
Under the motto “better than new”, this project is restoring old radios from the 50s and 60s to create music systems that combine the charm and warmth of a tube radio receiver with the very latest functionality. Specifically, a Raspberry Pi turns the device into a web radio that can be used to stream music. In keeping with the principle of upcycling, the old radios are upgraded, redesigned and used afresh.
